Requests for Loans after the RA Exhibition and pictures taken over by IWM
This file concerns loan requests received after the end of the war but before the allocations to museums and galleries had taken place. Many requests had to be refused because the collection was in a state of flux. Requests include those received from the Navy League, who held an exhibition at the Royal Society of British Artists; the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery, Bournemouth, which selected a show from the Navy League's exhibition; the Walker Art Gallery, and the Coventry and Warwickshire Society of Artists. The file includes catalogues for the Navy League and Russell-Cotes shows.
